Default The Newb from NY

Greetings BonnevilleClubers,

I am now the proud owner of a white 97 SE with 107k miles. I fell ini love with it the moment i saw it on the used lot. Sadly the original owner doesnt seem to have given it the love/care that it deserved. Ive already replaced the fuel assembly, spark plugs and wires, ac compressor, belts, brakes, oil change. Now that it runs reasonably well/reliablly ill want to start with the go faster mods.

Any other routine maintenence jobs that i should be looking into?
Im going to be putting on a CAI shortly, what should I try after that? the exhaust maybe?

Im not so proficient with autos as many of you seem to be so ill have loads of stupid questions.

Well, welcome to BC! It'* a great site, where everyone is helpful, where the buffalo roam, and the skies are not cloudy all day!

I think you'll find it'* a good place for information and perhaps just to hang and shoot the bull.

As far as good info, a great place to start is the TECH INFO tab at the top of your page. There'* all kinds a facts and info about mods, including one specific article about all the regular mods to look into first.

See ya around!

Incidentally, I was born in Warwick, NY and spent my first 10 years living in Sugar Loaf, NY. Then moved across the Hudson 'till I was 22.
